Please check this page and check your model number again.

Is it actually one of these showing up instead?

It would be very helpful to go to device manager, right click the video adapter, properties, details, change dropdown to hardware ids. Copy and paste what you find to here.

Katten, why bump and double post instead of answering my post? Besides doing Windows Update and possibly obtaining a driver, the advice I've given is the only way you will obtain a driver.

Katten, reason I didn't realize you tried update is because I accepted your posts as spam and generally had a brain blockage to them. I was trying to go the extra mile for you to see if I could help you out, even so. Good luck locating your driver.

Yup, I confused video card and controller in the post. I do things in a hurry sometimes because I multi-task. Didn't have to repost again like that.... No big deal.

Find the info for me I said and I'll see what I can find.........

If you are having a problem with your controller you woould get alot more response if you started a seperate thread in the driver section.
